Fire razed down about fifty-four (54) shops at the French Line section of the Kumasi Central Market, destroying properties worth thousands of Ghana cedis.

According to some victims, the fire started at about 2am, Sunday, October 20, 2019, from one of the container shops and spread to other structures.

Items including empty sacks, cosmetic products as well as food ingredients were burnt in the fire.

Although the official cause of the fire is not yet known, affected shop owners are pointing to an electrical fault.

Firefighters were said to have had a hard time dousing the fire as they struggled to get access through the congested marketplace.

Some affected shop owners have already begun rebuilding their structures.

Meanwhile, officials of the National Disaster Management Organization, (NADMO), have said they will collaborate with the fire officers to ascertain the exact cause of the fire.
